New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.
The following security bugs were fixed :
CVE-2018-14617: Prevent NULL pointer dereference and panic in hfsplus_lookup() when opening a file (that is purportedly a hard link) in an hfs+ filesystem that has malformed catalog data, and is mounted read-only without a metadata directory (bsc#1102870)
CVE-2018-14613: Prevent invalid pointer dereference in io_ctl_map_page() when mounting and operating a crafted btrfs image, caused by a lack of block group item validation in check_leaf_item (bsc#1102896).
CVE-2018-10940: The cdrom_ioctl_media_changed function allowed local attackers to use a incorrect bounds check in the CDROM driver CDROM_MEDIA_CHANGED ioctl to read out kernel memory (bsc#1092903)
CVE-2018-13093: Prevent NULL pointer dereference and panic in lookup_slow() on a NULL inode->i_ops pointer when doing pathwalks on a corrupted xfs image. This occured because of a lack of proper validation that cached inodes are free during allocation (bnc#1100001)
CVE-2018-13094: Prevent OOPS that may have occured for a corrupted xfs image after xfs_da_shrink_inode() is called with a NULL bp (bnc#1100000)
CVE-2018-13095: Prevent denial of service (memory corruption and BUG) that could have occurred for a corrupted xfs image upon encountering an inode that is in extent format, but has more extents than fit in the inode fork (bnc#1099999)
CVE-2018-12896: Prevent integer overflow in the POSIX timer code that was caused by the way the overrun accounting works. Depending on interval and expiry time values, the overrun can be larger than INT_MAX, but the accounting is int based. This basically made the accounting values, which are visible to user space via timer_getoverrun(2) and siginfo::si_overrun, random. This allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (signed integer overflow) via crafted mmap, futex, timer_create, and timer_settime system calls (bnc#1099922)
CVE-2018-16658: Prevent information leak in cdrom_ioctl_drive_status that could have been used by local attackers to read kernel memory (bnc#1107689)
CVE-2018-6555: The irda_setsockopt function allowed local users to cause a denial of service (ias_object use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an AF_IRDA socket (bnc#1106511)
CVE-2018-6554: Prevent memory leak in the irda_bind function that allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by repeatedly binding an AF_IRDA socket (bnc#1106509)
CVE-2018-1129: A flaw was found in the way signature calculation was handled by cephx authentication protocol. An attacker having access to ceph cluster network who is able to alter the message payload was able to bypass signature checks done by cephx protocol (bnc#1096748)
CVE-2018-1128: It was found that cephx authentication protocol did not verify ceph clients correctly and was vulnerable to replay attack. Any attacker having access to ceph cluster network who is able to sniff packets on network can use this vulnerability to authenticate with ceph service and perform actions allowed by ceph service (bnc#1096748)
CVE-2018-10938: A crafted network packet sent remotely by an attacker forced the kernel to enter an infinite loop in the cipso_v4_optptr() function leading to a denial-of-service (bnc#1106016)
The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
